Homogenized Milk not good for Heart

The gallons of milk carton we bring from the store thinking that is good for health goes through the process of Homogenization and pasteurization. This unbeatable health food, causes more bad than good because of all the processing it goes through. In many of the states in United States selling raw milk is not legal. However you can find them in your local co-operative and visit this site to find a local coop near you.

When milk is homogenized, it passes through a fine filter at pressures equal to 4,000 pounds per square inch, and in so doing, the fat globules (liposomes) are made smaller (micronized) by a factor of ten times or more. These fat molecules become evenly dispersed within the liquid milk.

Milk is a hormonal delivery system. With homogenization, milk becomes a very powerful and efficient way of bypassing normal digestive processes and delivering steroid and protein hormones to the human body (both the cow's natural hormones and the ones they were injected with to produce more milk).

Through homogenization, fat molecules in milk become smaller and become "capsules" for substances that bypass digestion. Proteins that would normally be digested in the stomach or gut are not broken down, and are absorbed into the bloodstream.

The homogenization process breaks up an enzyme in milk (xanthine oxidase), which in its altered (smaller) state can enter the bloodstream and react against arterial walls causing the body to protect the area with a layer of cholesterol. If this happened only occasionally, it wouldn't be a big deal, but if it happens on an ongoing basis... well, need I say any more.

In theory, proteins are easily broken down by digestive processes. In reality, homogenization insures their survival so that they enter the bloodstream and deliver their messages. Often, the body reacts to foreign proteins by producing histamines, then mucus. And since cow's milk proteins can resemble a human protein, they can become triggers for autoimmune diseases. Diabetes and multiple sclerosis are two such examples. The rarest of nature's quirks results after humans consume homogenized cow's milk. Nature has the best sense of humor, and always finds a way to add exclamation marks to man's best-punctuated sentences. One milk hormone, the most powerful growth factor in a cow's body, is identical to the most powerful growth factor in the human body. Hormones make cells grow, and don't differentiate between normal cells and cancerous cells. (It is well known that the earlier onset of menstration is linked to a higher risk of breast cancer and other cancers, but it's said "we don't know why". Well, it is known why; it's the overdosing of hormones by consuming them via an animal-based diet - especially dairy products. We're not designed to intake hormones; we make all the ones we need.)

There is also a problem with a protein enzyme called xanthine oxidase which is in cow's milk. Normally, proteins are broken down once you digest them.

When milk is homogenized, small fat globules surround the xanthine oxidase and it is absorbed intact into your blood stream. There is some very compelling research demonstrating clear associations with this absorbed enzyme and increased risks of heart disease.

Ear specialists frequently insert tubes into the ear drums of infants to treat recurrent ear infections. It has replaced the previously popular tonsillectomy to become the number one surgery in the country.

Unfortunately, most of these specialists don't realize that over 50% of these children will improve and have no further ear infections if they just stop drinking their milk.

In my personal experience this became true with my elder one, who was recommended with ear tubes because of frequent cough and cold and ear fluid accumulation. In a few months after stopping dairy, he became all well and there was no need for any surgery.
